Over Fonda Vela Hotel
Natuur is waar het hier om gaat. Het hotel is gelegen in het regenwoud, waar het verfrissende klimaat ervoor zorgt dat men het er "eeuwig lente" noemt. Het hotel is gebouwd met de natuur in het achterhoofd. Zo laten de grote ramen in de kamers de natuur naar binnen komen en zorgt de 1400 m hoogte voor een prachtig uitzicht. In de omgeving zijn natuurpaden te vinden waar je mooie vogels tegen kunt komen en het beroemde Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve ligt op 2 kilometer afstand.

Een bezoek aan het Monteverde Nevelwoud is als een sprookje. Het bos wordt dan ook wel ‘het sprookjesbos van Costa Rica’ genoemd. De geheimzinnige mist die altijd in dit woud hangt, zorgt voor een mysterieuze sfeer.
hotel has beautiful view. The facilities at the hotel and rooms are wonderful. our rooms had fantastic view of Monteverdi .The breakfast is nice and staff was wonderful. i think the price was a little high though. the hotel is far away from town so not a good option if you do not have a car. it does have a restaurant and a very good front desk that can help you arrange tours. we did not book tours with them as a little more costly than if you arrange on your own. over all , loved the hotel.
"Reasonable Hotel for Costa Rica"
A reasonable hotel for Costa Rica ie price and standard. Pool is nice and restaurant ok. Nice view and chalet style room which is Swiss style. Not brilliant if you have mobility problems as reception rooms and restaurant are on different levels on a hill. Taxi in to town Santa Elana is $7 each way so it may be better to stay in Santa Elana if you want to go out for meals. You can walk to town but takes around 40 mins but it's uphill on way back and I wouldn't do it at night. Most excursions pick you up from hotel so no real need to stay close to Monteverde park.
"Beautiful gardens and grounds and a first class swimming facility"
Hotel is a series of quadraplexes spread out over a beautiful hillside. Dining is in a building with soaring ceilings and huge glass windows (like to know how they got there unbroken over the gravel roads). Our room was a bit small but fine for our stay as we were on the go to sights most days. Highlight in my view is the large semi-enclosed pool and hot tubs, complete with changing rooms, lockers and showers. Food was generous and tasty morning and evenings. Dining room staff was short one night leading to delays, but otherwise fine. You can walk from here to town, but take a cab back, cost a flat $7. You will also need a ride to the main cloud forest park up the hill, but there is also a wonderful Children's Rain Forest a short walk below. My only suggested improvement here is some reclining chairs scattered about the lovely grounds so guests can relax and enjoy the views--maybe even a hammock or two.
"Quiet and Clean Location - Sparse Staff"
I will start by saying the front desk staff was very helpful. We were placed in a room where our neighbors passed our window and bed on their way to our room. Awkward for both of us. We asked to be moved and the hotel accommodated us immediately. Now for the review. The good - the rooms are clean and large - be careful not to get one of the rooms on the pathway to another room or you will always have to close your draperies to the view. I would recommend 2nd floor. There is a big pool with a bar that was never staffed. There are two jacuzzi hot tubs, slightly heated and can only be turned on if you hunt someone down to do so. The OK. While this a great location for Monte Verde National park, it is too far to walk to town. Taxis are $7 each way if you want to eat dinner away from the hotel. The Bad - The restaurant is severely understaffed. It is impossible to find someone at the bar, there was sometimes 1 waiter for all tables. If there was enough staff, they were busy talking and didn't seem interested in helping you. Not sure what the deal was as the rest of the hotel staff was great. One more thing, there is great cell service but awful Wifi. We brought Skyroam and connected to cell, then used that as our hotspot. It worked great.
"Great hotel, super close to the Monteverde Nature Reserve"
I stayed here in April with my girlfriend. The hotel was easy to find, felt pretty luxurious, and the staff was super friendly. The ground were well kept and the room was spotless. The breakfast buffet was good, though not the best I had in Costa Rica, just the basics of eggs, rice and black beans, white bread, pancakes, plantains, and large fruit plate. The pool was cool, but the fact that the pool isn't heated and is covered by an honing, so the water is pretty cold. The Jacuzzi were heated though, which was a bonus. The hotel's restaurant seemed overpriced and there are tons of options for great food in downtown Santa Elena. Pro tip: If you are driving to Monteverde, definitely rent an SUV. I read about this in other reviews and ignored this, and ended up renting a Toyota Yaris. The yaris barely made it to Monteverde and resulted in my flooring it and going not even 5 MPH up the mountains. Do yourself a favor and rent a 4X4.
